Blind debossing is our default style for all cover materials. When covers are blind debossed, it means that no color or foil is added to the stamp, and there is an impression alone in the cover. Foil debossing is available exclusively on our Luxe Linen covers. Color options include gold, silver, and rose gold.

Debossing FAQ

Debossing FAQ

Handcrafted

Our albums & books are debossed by hand. This gives us complete control in every situation. Materials react differently to various fonts and custom designs, and our handcrafted process allows us to tailor each album impression.

Blind Debossing Appears Darker on Some Covers

Some Luxe Leathers show a slightly darker tone in areas that are debossed. This is primarily seen on Alpine.

Custom Debossing Designs

The best Custom Debossing designs are made from clean, clear lines. Please avoid painterly designs, and they can come across as messy and muddy. And, be cautious when using extra thin fonts, as they can be difficult to read on materials with more texture.

Debossing Text Length

Be mindful of the size of your album relative to the length of your debossing text. Lengthy text may look great on a 12×12 album, but overbearing on an 8×8 album. Leaving some negative space on your cover is important, just like an album spread.

Using Cameos and Debossing Simultaneously

Keep it simple. Using cameos and debossing simultaneously can sometimes be distracting. When choosing to use them together, please reference the placement options for both debossing and cameo windows. If you have questions, please contact us to discuss what it is you have in mind.

Studio Debossing

Studio Debossing

With the one time purchase of a die of your logo, we will keep your studio die in-house, and you can choose to brand the back cover your albums and books with your logo, for free… forever. All other RedTree products can be personalized with a studio die for a $10 fee.

To order a studio die, you can start by converting your logo to black and white (with black being the area that will be debossed). Size it to the exact size you would like it to be on the album, and ensure it is 300 DPI.  Generally, dies look best between 2-3 inches wide. Once your design is ready, you can upload your studio die in a vector format, or as a high resolution JPG.
